Managed Resourcing

With Optimation Managed Resource Services (MRS), you retain ownership and control of your IT organisation and business IP while still having the freedom to tap into a diverse, qualified, and pre-screened pool of IT professionals to work on special projects or to address operational needs. Our MRS team includes experienced professionals across business analysis, project management, software development, systems integration, and testing.

Our MRS practice is led by senior professionals with an extensive track record in recruitment and talent management. With robust best practice recruitment and performance management processes, the technical skills and competencies of Optimation people are a given. However, we also take particular care to ensure our people are the right fit for your organisational culture and business practices. That means you can expect our people to hit the ground running, making a positive difference from the moment they walk through your door and actively contributing to the creation of strong cross-functional delivery teams.

Our practice-led professional services structure supports the development of best practice capability. This means that, unlike an independent contractor or body-shopped resource, our people are continually developing their skills and knowledge as part of our wider team of committed professionals. They are supported by The Optimation Way, a framework that brings together mature processes, tools, methodologies and governance to deliver excellent business and technical outcomes.
